Hey, if the Presidential spokesperson can flat our lie at news conferences, why can't lowly state senators get away with the same thing?
Sen. Paul Bailey @PaulBaileyforTN
Despite what the media may report several of the protesters admitted that they had been paid to be at the TN Capitol.

When pressed about his sources, Bailey said he couldn't reveal them due to security reasons. Later he posted a video as proof. He claimed they were buses loaded with protesters. Then he deleted the video after a news reporter pointed out that the buses he showed the video of were just actually buses carrying legislators to meet with lobbyists (read: wined and dined).
Folks, I don't care what party you support, we cannot tolerate being lied to. Democracy in America is fundamentally dependent upon the voters knowing the facts.
